I made it safely to Mongolia yesterday, minus my raincoat, which Air China seems to have stolen. I’m not going to write about it now at full length since this is just a check-in sort of thing. (I think whenever I do a quick post like this I’ll call it “Still alive: [wherever I am]”.) But from what I saw from the plane, I’m going to really like Mongolia. That’s in the future tense because I’m still in the city, which isn’t a terribly exciting city, but it certainly has its charms as well, like the absolutely amazing band I saw yesterday (with a couple Grinnellians and a Cincinnatian). But that’s a story for later. Today I’ve got exploring to do.
